Introduction to Multivariate Ecological Statistics

This four-day training workshop in Multivariate Statistics (theory and practice) provides an integrated programme of statistical approaches for research in ecology, field biology, environmental science and management.

The sessions provide an essential learning for those needing a skillset of statistical approaches required for research, or professional and industry-based projects. Delegates will be introduced to skills in experimental design, sampling strategies and data analysis that are essential to the setting up and evaluation of field experiments, landscape scale studies, research into ecosystem services and processes, and assessing the impacts of environmental change or management on biodiversity.

Delegates will be asked to bring their own data sets and there will be opportunities every day, as well as during the final afternoon, to relate their own data to the topic being taught. Focus on the open source statistical package R will ensure that skills are transferable to a wide range of employer and research settings. In addition, the course offers excellent networking opportunities with colleagues and peers from across the environmental sciences.

We also offer a wide range of other training courses in Ecological Survey Techniques and Data Analysis in Ecology.
